"An Amazing Experience "

Being surrounded by nature and it’s sounds was meditative. Great, tasty menu options for breakfast, lunch & dinner. Staff was super friendly and welcoming. Anna was my amazing Kundalini Yoga and Meditation instructor. She felt like a loving sister. Veronica and her Hatha yoga was so positive and memorable. The spa!!!! The messages and flower bath was by far the best experience I’ve ever had!

"A slice of Paradise"

From the moment I walked in, I felt like I had come to Paradise. Anna and her staff are just awesome.

As a 55+ year old woman who has never really done any yoga, Anna was superb at accommodating me. I was blown away by the power of the meditation and where it took me, I was able to reach deep into my soul.

The organised activities were great, I loved them all and they were flexible with changing them if requested.

The food was lovely, traditional Bali fare, freshly made as needed. Loved the Kombucha! .

The accommodation was clean and comfortable and I loved my little private Haven.

The spa treatment was to die for, absolutely divine.

All the staff there were just lovely, Agung took care of any minor request I had.

Anna has done an amazing job of ensuring you get what you need on so many levels.

I will definately be back and I already have a pile of friends who want to come as well to experience all that Santhika has to offer.

Thank you Anna and your team

"Excellent yoga and a little haven to relax."

Anna is an excellent gifted yoga teacher who can offer deep healing through the practice. I totally recommend it. The centre itself is idyllic and in a lovely location very quiet if you are looking for a place to relax. It’s also great for solo travellers. I recommend the 7 day yoga and wellness. It’s really good value for money with three tours involved in the package.

Also all food is included and some incredible spar treatments each day which leave you very relaxed. The place is situated in the north of Bali so beware that it’s a 4 hour transfer from the airport. You can book a taxi or a shuttle bus and to be honest the drive is quite relaxing if you happy to do it. The north of Bali is very beautiful so worth going. Anna and her staff organised all the transfers for me and anything I needed. The staff are lovely and happy to do things for you. I stayed in a private room that was unique and cleaned every day. It is quieter in a private room so if you want more peace I would go for that also they come with air con so it you struggle with heat it’s good to have. Other forms of accommodation are available but because the centre is small it can be noisy in certain areas depending on how full it is. I had a friend stay in a tent and she felt it was very noisy. I personally didn’t hear much in my room.

I recommend this centre totally

"Magical place"

A true little paradise. So glad i decided to try something different from the usual when going to Bali. Anna and her staff are very warm and welcoming. The Yoga was fabulous. The massages amazing. Thank you to all for making my stay a truly memorable experience.

"Amazing stay! "

Had a fantastic stay at Santhika! I was so good taken care of since the day I arrived. Got my own shedule of activities, yoga and massages. (Had the 7 days wellness, meditation and yogaretreat). The yogainstruktor and owner of the place, Anna, was great. She showed us and challenged us to go further and challenge our self, both physical and mentally.

The staff is amazing. They are all so kind and do whatever they can in order to give you a plesant stay. The food is excellent and healthy. The chef made me som special lunch/dinner from my request. The massage you get is really good. The ”queen treatment” was just amazing - you really felt like a Queen.

And then, above all, I had three tours in my package. Together with other guests, but always in a small group, we where taken out to see the best of North Bali.

To sum up - an amazing stay at a wonderful place! Highly recommended!

"Amazing experience "

We were so well looked after from the moment we arrived to the morning we left. The Yoga was amazing as was the hospitality. The arranged excursions were breathtaking and included local knowledge that personalised it and gave you a real snapshot of the area/people.

"A retreat center that i highly recommend"

This B&B is special with an very authentic character. A cosy and charming place to stay. Anna really takes good care of all her customers and the kundalini-yoga-lessons that she gives, are really good. She gives them in a very good way. The massages are also of high quality, just like the food. This B&B is located in a quite place, although regularly you hear dogs barking and chickens in the morning. It is the perfect location for interesting excursions.

"Wonderful stay at Santhika yoga retreat centre "

I liked the beautiful atmosphere at the resort. It’s quite small (currently expanding) and cosy which give you warm feeling even if u are a solo traveller. I liked the idea that you can stay there in the hostel and also be a part of yoga retreat. You can join different tours during your stay where you can see amazing waterfalls, rice fields and marvellous Bali nature. The food was very delicious and you can choose accordingly to your preference. It’s unlimited beverages throughout the stay. It’s a very convenient location as it’s just approximately 15 min walk to the beach. The place is perfect as for solo as for couple travellers. I’m looking forward to visit this place again and also have to mention friendly owners and staff who cares about their guests needs.

"Eternal gratitude. Sat Nam 🙏"

Anna is a force of nature and gifted me with her infinite generosity on precious kundalini yoga and meditation classes, not to mention the personalized kriyas. She also encouraged me to receive, by taking special spa sessions, which then I realized to be part of a broader learning lesson. The location is an oasis and the Villa has the most orange sky beautiful sunset I have ever seen. Anna, eternal gratitude 🙏

"Beautiful and peaceful place to relax"

Santhika was wonderful. Anna met us when we arrived after our comfy airport transfer (even though we arrived at 3.30am) our rooms were beautiful with comfy double beds, fantastic bathrooms and beautiful gardens surrounding them.

The staff at Santhika were all so smily and friendly and we could want for nothing.

Our 7 day retreat was a perfect blend of yoga, relaxation, good food, exploring Northern Bali and of course the incredible massage.

Kundalini yoga was led by Anna who did a great job of pushing us so we could break our own boundaries and find new limits.

"Amazing spiritual retreat"

My stay was a very spiritual and healing experience. The yoga practices is mostly Kundalini Yoga which I haven't tried before. It was very focussed on the breath and on controlling the energies in your body through pranayamas. I can say that it definitely stirred my inner energies and I will continue to practice Kundalini Yoga from now onwards. Thank you Anna for that. The additional Vinyasa sessions with Veronika were magical and helped to release the tensions from the body. I felt full of emotion and energy after those practices. Thank you Veronika for this beautiful energy of yours. The spa treatments were amazing and I enjoyed the trips to waterfalls, temples and to see dolphins. The food was always freshly prepared by the lovely staff and they were open to adjust the dishes to my vegan diet.

The accommodation was clean and open to nature. You basically slept in tune with nature and could hear the animals in the morning. I really enjoyed that :)

"Unforgettable experience"

My stay in Santhika was wonderful. I booked a private room for 11 days (quite big with a charming "outside-like" bathroom)

// food was healthy (usually cooked with coconut oil), that guests get to choose according to their diversified menu; + several opportunities to try Balinese cuisine (yummy!!)

// yoga classes took place within a nice atmosphere (music + insense), the asanas and meditation exercices were different each day, so we get to work on every part of the body along the retreat

// we got the opportunity to practice at another villa on the beach just before watching sunset, which was another magical experience....

// 3 spa sessions, with Balinese style massages, scrubs, facial, hair treatment and flower bath, dreamy

// 2 waterfalls excursions to discover the inner Bali + dolphins watching tour on Lovina beach : very well organized, the guides always made sure that we were comfortable and had always small attentions for the group (breakfast on the boat, clay mask in a river, photographs taken, etc.)

// Anna and her staff at Santhika were always lovely and happy to help or give advice for any kind of requests :)

Thank you once again for this fantastic experience, I'm already figuring out when can I come back!

"Great experience!Highly recommend it!"

Everyone was very warm, respectful and friendly.

Yoga with Anna was a beautiful experience, I left the retreat feeling amazing!

Spa treatments and the tours they organise for you were perfect!

I love the fact that it is located in the North of Bali, never been before and it is truly calm and authentic.

Santhika is a small little place in paradise. I felt so welcome and as a part of the family. Anna, her family and the staff are amazing. It's a cute little place to leave the outside world behind.

I'm honest if I would have seen on bookyogaretreat that it is Kundalini yoga I would haven't booked it but I am so happy about this! I didn't like Kundalini but with Anna it's awesome! You can trust Anna and feel totally safe with her. She got a huge knowledge. She really helps you and looks that you feel comfortable and good.

All my trips were amazing and not touristy. My massages as well. The girls are angels and the food they cook is so delicious ,)

"Eutopia"

Fabulous welcome, I am solo traveller and arrived late in the evening and a meal was delivered to my accomodation which was a few hundred yards from the retreat. Everyone was so happy and helpful yet not overbearing. It was home from home with added peace and tranquillity.

The Yoga was excellent I am a beginner aged 55 with creaky joints, Anna pitched it perfectly, I am continuing with Kundalini yoga at home, it delivered all I hoped for, mindfulness and wellbeing. I had a strong spiritual experience during a meditation from which I felt so lifted, a mind opening experience. Anna is an amazing lady and has great intuition for tailoring your experience. I am not a big review writer but strongly recommend coming here. The relaxation and spa alone are worth it and the yoga is the icing in the cake. Anna also arranges local trips, thermal spa, dolphin watching and bathing in local waterfall, stunning scenery and visit to paddy fields. In summary a total joy 😍

"Uniquely tailored retreat"

Leading up to this trip the staff at Santhinka were very quick to respond to any questions we had. My cousin and I missed our connecting flight leaving the states due to bad weather. We contacted Santhinka retreat and asked to shift our retreat one day later. They were happy to accomodate this request. When we arrived in Depasar we easily found our driver who was holding a sign with our name on it. After a two or so hour ride in a very nice van we arrived at the retreat. Anna, our host, met us with a delicious fresh iced tea, fruit plate and fabulous itinerary for the next three days.

The excursions Anna planned for us were unique and local and the guides top notch! Our first day we went to a temple and hot springs. Our guide waited for us while we enjoyed both and gave us no time restraints. We literally could have stayed hours at each location.

The spa treatments were very relaxing and thorough.

Our room was clean, nicely decorated and air conditioned. The bathroom was a fun nature inspired experience with living plants that tied the outdoors with the indoors.

The staff and hosts were kind and fun to be around and extremely accommodating.

The food was delicious!

"Simple authentic Bali at its best"

I booked a private room and was given a villa at Alam Sunset Villas right on the water. I fell asleep listening to the waves, arose to pink hues over the ocean, was tended to with love by the staff Marilena and Surya - and had the most delicious massages by Putu and Marilena in the bungalow next to the ocean. And then there’s Ana and her strong but gentle way of guiding you through a Kundalini practice - I was lucky enough to experience this in the rustic shala by the beach whilst the sun set over the ocean in front of us as well as at the Santhika shala with the gong. Transformative! There was also two amazing days seeing the real Balinese villages, temples, waterfalls and jungle with Kadek then the local dolphins and snorkeling in crystal clear ocean with Dodi. Such happy spirited, informative and caring people. Feeling truely blessed by Bali and Ana & Komang’s team at Santhika. Suksma & Namaste x

"Great for solo travelers "

I loved the two spa treatments I received during my stay. I liked the atmosphere. I learned to like the kundalini style yoga. I like the attention and care I received from Anna and all the staff. I liked my outings and activities a lot. I liked being walking distance to the beach.
